President Donald Trump today signed into law the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019 (NDAA), which includes a provision spearheaded by U.S. Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy of Winter Park, Fla, that will help the nearly 250,000 servicemembers who leave the military each year achieve their professional and personal goals once they transition to civilian life. Murphy, who serves on the House Armed Services Committee (HASC), successfully advocated for the provision as a member of the NDAA conference committee, which was responsible for reconciling the differences between the House and Senate versions of the bill in order to produce the final legislation. Murphy was the first freshman Democratic Member of HASC appointed to the NDAA conference committee in nearly 20 years.
